For a first bite of new/old Miami, eat on the wild side in the heart of fringe, where the art is edgy — Shepard Fairey inside and endless graffiti — and the food clever and comforting. Chef Miguel Aguilar’s black bean soup, vaca frita, clams and chorizo set new standards. Don’t miss his hamburguesitas and skewers of pork belly or baby octopus.
